Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

How about we allow people with reputation >= 5000 to see deleted questions & answers?

I just broke 5k, so part of me likes this, but I'm still going to have to downvote you unless you can provide a better reason than "it's a fun ability to have." Are 10k+ users not doing enough janitorial work? – Pops Apr 17 '12 at 20:35

I agree with Michael Mrozek, people don't need to see ALL deleted question, but they should always be able to see their own questions that were deleted.

Expecially considering that questions are deleted without prior notice.

Why would they need to? 10k users can see deleted posts, but that's because they also have the ability to vote to undelete them, which is hard to do if they're invisible. If users can't undelete posts there's no reason for them to see deleted posts in the first place

I just think it's a fun ability to have, even if you can't delete them. Just today, someone told me that Jon Skeet answered on my question and then deleted his answer. I would like to see his answer, even if he deleted it. Why? Call it curiosity.… – ripper234 Nov 27 '10 at 10:53
